android monthly unlimited

$2 Daily Unlimited provides all the value of Monthly Unlimited and nationwide coverage at a low daily rate. The $2 subscription charge is automatically deducted from your Boost account each day after midnight, regardless of usage, unless the you cancel the subscription. Recharge at least once every 90 days to keep your account active (after 90 days any credit balance will expire).

Daily Unlimited

International Connect provides unlimited international talk and text with family and friends around the world. It can be added to Monthly Unlimited and Android Monthly Unlimited plans for an additional $5 per month, and added to the BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited plan for $10 per month.

Boost Shrinkage

All Monthly Unlimited plans include Shrinkage and unlimited nationwide talk, text, web, e-mail, and 411. Shrinkage reduces your payment by $5/month for every six on-time payments, up to $15/month in total. Android Monthly Unlimited to as low as $40/month.

On-Time Payments

On-time payments are made on or before the monthly payment date. Your monthly payment date remains the same every month as long as you successfully make your monthly payment. However, if you make a late payment, your payment date will be reset to the day of the month before the date your service is restored (e.g., if your service is restored on February 15th, your monthly payment date will be reset to March 14th).

Missed Payment

While it’s best to make regular on-time payments each month, payments do not have to be consecutive. If you miss a payment you don’t have to start over. The on-time payments made to the account will still be available as well as any savings milestone achieved.

After doing EXTENSIVE research on multiple sites I…

A Bit of a One-Trick Pony…but What a Trick! First of all, let’s get the “negative” points of this smartphone out of the way, front-and-center:- The Hydro lacks 4G capability.- The screen is relatively small (by contemporary standards), and of moderate resolution.- You get “only” a 1gHz, single-core processor. Heavy gamers won’t be pleased.- The 3.2MP camera (rear-facing-only) isn’t much to write home about.Now, on to the meat of the matter: as a freelance IT person, I’ve set up…
